    How to install Folio3x step by step

    Hello all,

    as I see more and more people having troubles installing this rom, here is a how-to (translated from FrAndroid.com)

    Step 1 - Install fastboot driver for the Folio :

    - Download PdaNet and install it on your PC, it will go till a point where it says it can't be installed and cancel itself but the magic is that the driver is installed.
    Download PdaNet

    Step 2 - Download the tools needed to prepare the Folio

    - Download and extract the following archive on your PC, these are the tools needed to erase the Folio and to flash the Honeycomb rom. You will only need what's inside the folder ToolsD...
    Outils_Install_Folio3x.zip - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage

    Step 3 - Start fastboot mode on the Folio

    - Start the tablet and at the TOSHIBA logo press 3 times Power and 1 time Vol+, then connect it to the PC. It should be detected by the driver we installed at step 1.

    Step 4 - Erase the tablet and flash the new recovery (ClockWorkMod)

    - Open a cmd window on your PC, go to the folder ToolsD we extracted at step 2 and type in the following commands :

    fastboot erase userdata
    fastboot erase system
    fastboot erase cache
    fastboot erase linux
    fastboot erase recovery
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot reboot

    Step 5 - Install the new rom from ClockWorkMod

    - Once the reboot starts, at the TOSHIBA logo, press Power and Vol+ at the same time, then Vol+, then Vol-, then Vol+. You should be in ClockWorkMod recovery...
    - Prepare a SD card with your favorite rom (for me it's http://tabletroms.com/forums/folio-r...html#post24278), don't forget to unzip it, you should end with a update.zip file.
    - Insert the SD card in the tablet and select - apply sdcard:update.zip, it should start the installation. If not chose - install zip from sdcard and choose the file. If you can't see it, either the sdcard is not formated correctly or it simply does not see the card, try to reboot the recovery with the sdcard inserted.

    After these steps and once it's installed, it should reboot and start VEGACOMB. Please be patient, it takes a while to start... and do not forget to reboot after the initial setup to activate the wifi (yes it's a bug)!

    If it still does not start, reflash it again (step 5) sometimes it just does not work on first try. What you can also try is to format the different partitions from ClockWorkMod recovery, there's a Mounts and Storage menu and after you mount all the possible partitions (some won't), format them all, reboot the recovery and start step 5 again.

    Regards,

    Luis

    Hello,

    I bet you flashed the recovery.img that was in the folder ToolsC..... you need to work from folder ToolsD that is in the zip downloaded in step 2.

    Hello

    I hope someone can give me some hope and inspiration here.
    I've been trying to install this Folio3x, or actually it installs just fine. The problem is that I can't sign in to my Google account with this ROM.
    For three days I've been trying all kinds of methods.

    As soon as I install one of the non Honeycomb ROM's it works just fine.

    I've tried all of the suggested solutions I've found on the Internet. (Log in with Youtube, adding a APN, factory reset and so on)
    The strange thing is that when I tried the Youtube trick I noticed that it won't even show any videos in Youtube. It just won't connect.
    I can connect and use the Internet with any other app than those from Google.

    Any thoughts?
